Of Library Holds and the Olympics

Of Library Holds and the Olympics

Do you guys love your local library as much as I do?!?  I love that I can put books on hold, HOWEVER!  What is it with library holds and their crazy timing in showing up?!?  I’m a HUGE fan of the Olympics, and all my library holds came in right as the Olympics started!  Seriously?!?

So what does one do in this situation?  One deals with sleep deprivation!  Am I right?!?

I posted this picture on Instagram…


…and got several requests for the book info. Here ya go, from the top of the stack to the bottom.

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.  The one gets mentioned a lot in relation to The Thirteenth Tale.

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.  I’m trying to read several of Liane’s books before I meet her at #READ Savannah next month, but the wait list for her stuff is LONG!

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.  Read.  This.  Book.  I’ll say more on my end-of-month reading recap, but oh my goodness!

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles Book 2) by Marissa Meyer.

Beach House Memories by Mary Alice Monroe.  This is another author I’ll meet at #READ Savannah!

Fates and Furies: A Novel by Lauren Groff.  I heard about this one (as well as most books in this stack) on Modern Mrs. Darcy‘s podcast, What Should I Read Next?  (Coming back later to let you know I abandoned this one pretty quickly due to the ick factor.)

The first week of September I’ll share all the books I read in August and what I thought about them.  (You can see what I read in June here and in July here!)

Are YOU reading any of these books?  Do your library holds come in at less-than-perfect times?  Chime in below and let me know!

  1. YES! I just turned in several books that I never got to read because I had exhausted the number of times I could renew them but never got around to reading them! #somanybookssolittletime

    1. That’s a sad, sad thing, Sheila! A couple of mine can’t be renewed since other people are waiting for them, so I read them first. Now I’m working my way through the others and will renew some if I have to. Whew! Library books strategy! LOL!

      1. The best thing about the library is I can check them out again when I’m ready for them! I love the library!
